Whimsical and figurative art
Charcoal and Pastel Portraits
I do quick-sketch portraits at outdoor
shows like Art on the Green and
Yankee Peddler Festival. Relaxed
sittings are great for kids and adults
of all ages. Drawings fit standard size
mats/frames. Charcoal portraits on
toned paper take about 30 minutes -
squirming allowed! Colorful pastel
portraits take slightly longer. Drawings with multiple sitters -- couples, siblings -- also
Interested in art classes?
Private and semi-private lessons for youth and adults are available at my studio. Classes in drawing, painting, mixed media and assemblage are offered with emphasis on working from life.
You can find my artwork at Elements Gallery in Peninsula at 1619 Mill St. W., next to the train station for the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. Check out the "moon" wall ... with a few suns for extra color! For info, visit fromskilledhands.com.
The h'Art of Chagrin
This creative and eclectic gift gallery is located at 100 N. Main St., #220 in Chagrin Falls. You'll find
a fun selection of my whimsical moons and a great view of the falls up the street. For more info, visit thehartofchagrin.com

Glow, moons, glow!
Whimsical moons show a variety of expressions and each is one of a kind. Look for them at Elements Gallery in Peninsula, H'Art of Chagrin in Chagrin Falls and at my studio at Uncommon Art in Hudson. Space has a face with these fun-loving, sassy, grumpy, quizzical, sleepy -- you get the idea -- moons!
I truly enjoyed having fashion illustrator Corrine George as my guest artist during the Art Hop last fall. Beautiful work ... and a beautiful lady!
